The North Wales cross-country championships, originally scheduled for two weeks ago, will now be held in conjunction with the final League fixture of the season in Wrexham on March 5. Those wishing to re-enter will have to pay on the day.
The penultimate League fixture will be held in Oswestry on February 5, and the individual end-of-season results will therefore be judged on the best three placings out of four, instead of the usual four out of five.
